I received a case for a single crown, Titan Implant, morris taper design.
Does anyone do these? How is the Dr supposed to properly orient the abutment before tapping it into place?
Seems like a bad joke to me.

Ill add...I asked the Dr about this. He was offended and said bring all his cases back. Theres another bridge burned I guess.

We do quite a few, is not as bad as it seems...no failures so far (knocks on wood). The interprox walls guide the abutment/crown into its place, hammer is only used to lock the morse taper together. I think there's some sort of cold-weld happening b/c it's a b1tch to separate later...

Should've ask here before losing another account...:banghead:

sometimes you get the call and don't have time to " get back to them".

So how does the Dr seat the abutment when its non-engaging (?) no anti-rotational guides?

Either an orientation jig, or you cement the crown to the abutment (that's what we do)...so the doc doesn't have to

How often do you have problems with the path of insertion of the abutment connection and the adjacent teeth?

Very seldom, this particular dentist always uses guided to place the implants

Ugh. There's so many reasonable choices out there. Gravitating to outliers doesn't make you special it makes you an ass. There's a reason no one likes these.

He's offended because he's realizing he's one of those.

PS I loath people like this. They walk away because they cannot educate their team members on their choices and how to facilitate them.

So I guess I need to updtae my mantra. "Every implant deserves a guide, and every implant abutment should be effectively retained in place properly." 25 plus years ago Corevent/Zimmer had a Morse taper and a screw to hold it in place, and the implant head still mushroomed. I don't think a morse taper and flat broad contacs are effective ways to retain an abutment.

I remember taking a course at Bayview back in the nineties. Long chat with Rick. They were **** then and they're **** now. The market ruled these out years ago, but you still find poor decision makers....
I understand dealing with legacy Crap that walks in the door, but Mr take his toys home doesn't sound smart enough for that.
